This involves a meeting with a consultant obstetrician who specialises in maternal-fetal medicine, during which time any concerns that you may have about plans for an upcoming pregnancy can be discussed.

For example, if you have previously delivered a baby with a health problem or if you have previously had medical or pregnancy complications, the chances of a recurrence of these problems can be discussed. Options to reduce the chances of recurrence and to maximise the chances of a successful pregnancy outcome can be addressed.
